[Get Solution] Passage Identification

Choose five (5) of the following nine (9) passages and perform these operations. 1. Identify the author and title of the text in which the passage appears (one point each, two points total). 2. Briefly discuss (in a substantive paragraph) some of the salient features of the passage. Bear in mind that these features may be formal, linguistic, conceptual, and/or historical—and that you are free to talk about how the passage relates to the work in which it appears as well as how it fits in with the broader cultural stuff that we talked about in class (10 points).  1.          [Mr. Plummer] was a cruel man, hardened by a long life of slaveholding. He would at times seem to take great pleasure in whipping a slave. I have often been awakened at the dawn of day by the most heart-rending shrieks of an own aunt of mine, whom he used to tie up to a joist, and whip upon her naked back till she was literally covered with blood. No words, no tears, no prayers, from his gory victim, seemed to move his iron heart from its bloody purpose. The louder she screamed, the harder he whipped; and where the blood ran fastest, there he whipped longest. He would whip to make her scream, and whip to make her hush; and not until overcome by fatigue, would he cease to swing the blood clotted cowskin. I remember the first time I ever witnessed this horrible exhibition. I was quite a child, but I well remember it. 2.           If a thousand men were not to pay their tax-bills this year, that would not be a violent and blood measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible. If the tax-gatherer, or any other public officer, asks me, as one has done, ‘But what shall I do?’ my answer is, ‘If you really wish to do any thing, resign your office.’ When the subject has refused allegiance, and the officer has resigned his office, then the revolution is accomplished. 3.           Ye say they all have passed away, That noble race and brave, That their light canoes have vanished From off the crested wave; That ‘mid the forests where they roamed There rings no hunter shout, But their name is on the waters, Ye may not wash it out. 4.           Poor fellow, thought Captain Delano, so nervous he can’t even bear the sight of barber’s blood; and this unstrung, sick man, is it credible that I should have imagined he meant to spill all my blood, who can’t endure the sight of one little drop of his own? Surely, Amasa Delano, you have been beside yourself this day. Tell it not when you get home, sappy Amasa. Well, well, he looks like a murderer, doesn’t he? More like as if himself were to be done for. Well, well, this day’s experience shall be a good lesson. 5.           “Indeed, Lucy, he has an admirable talent for contributing to vary, and increase amusement. We have few hours unimproved. Some new plan of pleasure, and sociability is constantly courting our adoption. He lives in all the magnificence of a prince; and why should I, who can doubtless share that magnificence if I please, forego the advantages and indulgences it offers, merely to gratify those friends who pretend to be better judges of my happiness than I am myself?” 6.           Now let me ask you, white man, if it is a disgrace for to eat, drink, and sleep with the image of God, or sit, or walk and talk with them. Or have you the folly to think that the white man, being one in fifteen or sixteen, are the only beloved images of God? Assemble all nations together in your imagination, and then let the whites be seated among them, and the let us look for the whites, and I doubt not it would be hard finding them: for to the rest of the nations they are but a handful. Now suppose those skins were put together, and each skin had its national crimes written upon it—which skin do you think would have the greatest? 7.           To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart, is true for all men,—that is genius. Speak your latent conviction and it shall be the universal sense; for always the inmost becomes the outmost,—and our first thought is rendered back to us by the trumpets of the Last Judgment. 8.           The question now arose as to the character of the word. Having made up my mind to a refrain, the division of the poem into stanzas, was, of course, a corollary: the refrain forming the close to each stanza. That such a close, to have force, must be sonorous and susceptible of protracted emphasis, admitted no doubt: and these considerations inevitably led me to the long o as the most sonorous vowel, in connection with r as the producible consonant. 9.           Through me forbidden voices, Voices of sexes and lusts, voices veil’d and I remove the veil, Voices indecent by me clarified and transfigured. I do not press my fingers across my mouth, I keep as delicate around the bowels as around the head and heart, Copulation is no more rank to me than death is. I believe in the flesh and the appetites, Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me is a miracle. Divine I am inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touch’d from, The scent of these arm-pits aroma finer than prayer, This head more than churches, bibles, and all the creeds.   Possible Authors: • Ralph Waldo Emerson • Walt Whitman • Henry David Thoreau • Hannah Webster Foster • Edgar Allan Poe • Frederick Douglass • Herman Melville • William Apess • Lydia Huntley Sigourney Possible Texts: • “Philosophy of Composition” • “Leaves of Grass [Song of Myself]” • “Indian Names” • The Coquette • Benito Cereno • “Self-Reliance” • “An Indian’s Looking-Glass for the White Man” • “Resistance to Civil Government” • Narrative of the Life of [Name], an American Slave
